Origin of Coastal Carolinas Association of REALTORS®
The Coastal Carolinas Association of REALTORS® is proud to
serve all members in Horry and Georgetown counties.
Until the early 1980’s, the REALTOR® presence in Horry
County was largely fragmented and dispersed over four boards.
The Grand Strand Board had jurisdiction over the
northeastern corner of the county.
The Myrtle Beach Board had
jurisdiction over Myrtle Beach proper, westward to Forestbrook and
southward to Highway 544. The South Strand Board had jurisdiction below
that to Georgetown County and westward to the Intracoastal Waterway.
The Conway Board had jurisdiction over the remaining bulk of the county.
Each of these boards operated independently under their own
officers and board of directors.
The Myrtle Beach Board operated the
Multiple Listing Service, and shared the service with the members of
other boards on an individual contract basis. The Myrtle Beach Board was
the only one with paid staff. The functionality of the other boards
fell on the board’s president, treasurer and secretary. This often
presented a rather heavy work load for the officers, in addition to
making a living in the real estate industry.
These factors sparked talks of
a merger in the 1980’s. Members of each board met formally
and informally to discuss the merger. In 1981, the South
the Myrtle Beach Board and the Conway Board approved the
Georgetown Board of REALTORS® joined the association in
1995, and the name was changed to the Coastal Carolinas Association of
In January of 2009, we were pleased to merge with Grand Strand Board of REALTORS®.
